We studied microbial distribution in soils affected by varying land use types in late 2010. A target soil survey sampling technique aided field collection of soil samples. Soil samples were subjected to routine laboratory analysis. Mean statistic was used to analyze generated data. Soil properties differed among land use types and this influenced distribution of soil microbes. Soils of the petrol dumpsite had the least Ca: Mg ratio but dominated in the content and distribution of Pseudomonas.
